Quantitative Ultrasound Stochastic Tomography - Revolutionizing breast cancer diagnosis and screening with supercomputing-based radiation-free imaging.

Project description

Innovative algorithms revolutionise ultrasound breast cancer imaging

Algorithms developed in the field of geophysical imaging can be used to enhance information from ultrasound imaging in medical applications. The adjoint-state modelling and iterative optimisation will provide quantitative images of human tissue with very high resolution. The EU-funded QUSTom project will investigate the possibility to apply the fundamental science behind adjoint-based uncertainty imaging for breast cancer diagnosis. This feasibility study of the technology as a diagnostic tool will cover the adaptation of data acquisition hardware for optimal resolution, application of the algorithms in high-performance computers, and final feasibility analysis by radiologists as a comparison with the current state-of-the-art imaging in breast cancer diagnostic.
